Jonathan Rhys Meyers could behead me anytime

As a good politically aware Canadian girl, I watch the Rick Mercer Report religiously.  The dude rocks.  Although I am slightly disappointed, as I am sure many are, that he plays for the other team.  But I digress.

After RMR, there are always sultry, intriguing previews for The Tudors. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is Henry VIII? Man, if only the pompous lusty royal really looked like that!  He could behead me anytime!  I really wanted to watch the show, but it is all sequential, and I had already missed the first 5 episodes.  What’s a poor maiden to do?

Hello, my good friend, BitTorrent. Within one night, I had all 10 episodes at my disposal, ready to indulge in the royal fantasy.  And indulge I did.  It has me completely hooked.  Not only on his Highness’s bod, but on the actual history itself.  I have the encyclopedia out, wikipedia is open on my laptop, and I am researching until my eyes can’t focus on his lovely face anymore.

In fact, my research led me to a trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl, which led me here and then here, which led me to the library to get a copy of this book, which I am devouring like leftover Halloween treats..  I am indeed addicted.  I may have to seek some sort of 12 step program once the show ends and I have finished all of Gregory’s books.  Alas, I cannot bear to think of it: the pain is too great…

  2. Oh, honey! I am right there with you! I have devoured anything and everything pertaining to the Tudors that I can get my hands on. OK, read all of Gregory’s books. Get finished with those, then read:

    The Six Wives of Henry VIII by Alison Weir (non-fiction)

    Again, by Alison Weir is Children of Henry VIII and Life of Elizabeth the I. She also did a fictional story about Lady Jane Grey called Innocent Traitor: A Novel of Lady Jane Grey that was really good.

    Now, there’s also Elizabeth I by Anne Somerset, an excellent fictional book with a non-fiction feel.

    Whew. Hope I haven’t made your to be read list very long.

  3. Sadly, I started the Other Boleyn Girl and hated it. I think I made it 20 pages. It’s just not my style – but everyone else I know LOVED it. Happy reading!
